What do you get the man who has everything? If you're Angelina Jolie, you buy Brad Pitt a waterfall. The Daily Mail reports that Angie bought him this formidable force of nature for his 48th birthday. And you thought you were special, getting your longtime lover a Groupon for a cooking class for his birthday, pshaw. Vivienne and Knox are laughing in your face right now.
So this waterfall, this natural-gift-turned-birthday-gift, is supposedly in California where Brad wants to build a home. Apparently, he's always wanted a house over a waterfall and has plans to erect an architectural dream house over the cascade. Obviously.
How fantastic to be so rich that you can just buy up bits of nature willy nilly and give them away as presents. I thought you could only really do that with the Adopt a Highway program, or Adopt a Whale, but turns out if you're rich and famous and you want a waterfall, you got it. Lucky sons of bitches. God, I want to be Zahara so badly it hurts.
The house is reportedly going to be inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater home, which is in Pennsylvania and on a similar slot of land. The Jolie-Pitt home is going to be beautiful and amazing and breathtaking and amazing and beautiful and everyone will love it. No doubt about it.
It's just, a waterfall? Really? If this starts a new trend, I'll be ticked off -- I really don't want to be hiking and come across Courteney Cox's redwood or Ryan Gosling's cree ... wait. Take that back. I'd like to come across any and all things Gosling, so that doesn't work there, but you get the point.
I wonder how Angie is going to top this for Brad's 50th, which is now only two years away. (Also, can we just sit on that for a moment? Brad's almost 50! Where does the time go.) Maybe she'll buy him a state and change its name from, say, Idaho to Pittaho. Maybe she'll buy him a planet. Who knows, maybe she'll adopt 50 kids in his honor and likeness. It'll be an exciting time for sure, because once you gift a waterfall, you open things up for a deluge of high expectations.
What do you think of Angie's gift to Brad?
